Our Favorite Fried Ice Cream

kailee wright fried ice cream recipe

Today on the blog I wanted to share one of our recently favorite recipes! I made this fried ice cream last minute for Hunter’s soccer team and it was so easy. I had to serve over 50 people, so I ordered all the ingredients from Walmart so I could stay on budget + you all know how much I love my groceries delivered right to my door!

For this recipe you only need 5 ingredients! I use all Great Value ingredients from Walmart. Using Great Value ingredients from Walmart not only helps me save money but also offers the highest quality!

1 cube melted butter

1/2 cup coconut flakes

2/3 cup of brown sugar

2 1/2 cup of rice crisps

1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream


First mix together the 1 cube melted butter, 1/2 cup of coconut flakes, and 2/3 cup of brown sugar in a large bowl. Then add the 2 1/2 cup of rice crisps into the bowl. Then, spread this mixture on a cookie sheet and bake at 300 for 20 minutes. Make sure you turn/stir it every 5 minutes.

Now, put 1/2 of this crispy mixture on the bottom of a 9×13 baking pan and then spread 1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream over it. Then put the other half of the crispy mixture on top of the ice cream. After this is done, put it in the freezer until ready to serve.

[I would definitely recommend doubling this recipe]


For Hunter’s soccer team, I served the fried ice cream in individual scoops using paper ice cream cups and plastic spoons. I also brought caramel and chocolate syrup from Walmart that they could use as toppings. It’s seriously so yummy with caramel sauce on top!

. . .

I hope you all love this recipe as much as my family does! With the holidays coming, and having to cook and bake for big groups, Walmart is my go-to place where I feel like I can buy the private brands like Great Value and not feel like I’m trading down value.
